Montana: Jon Tester. W.T.H?

Iím reading that we are still counting. Is there a recount or runoff if the results are within 1%? Iím so disappointed. How are you all?

1. Votes still coming in from "larger" counties

Tester is +16 % in this counties with approx 20k votes left. It will be very close but I think he pulls off the win.

6. From your keyboard...

The alternative is horrible for Montana and our public lands...owned by all of us...not just Montanans.

9. 538 and Upshot

have looked at where the remaining votes are. Looks like a Tester is pretty strongly favored to win by a small margin.

4. I think the votes yet to be counted in Missoula put him over the top

only 50% of vote in and Tester is @ 65%

8. One of the machines went down in Gallatin county.

We had over 40,000 mail in ballots and the machine went kaput. 15 hours yesterday and back I go.

15. Oh my gosh, still not done.

The women running this thing have been going on their 45th hour straight. Yesterday we had about 75 people helping from the bottom to the top until 7 this morning then the day crew from yesterday went in today at 7am and left at 7 pm. The machine is still bonky but I am guessing we still have about 6 hours of about 3 dozen people to go tomorrow. There is still a small night crew on now. Yikes!!! The waiting to find out is pure torment.

13. Ugh!

I'm not in Gallatin anymore but I know the nature of the place, I thought Tester would have a bigger lead.

21. Thanks, I feel that it is my duty.

I would suck at phone calls and door knocking. I will let those who are more eloquent and have more self control. My mouth tends to run away from me.

You weren't one of my census workers were you? Just kidding. I am hard pressed to approach people so I look for other ways to participate too.

24. Thank you for the updates GemDigger.

I canít believe the time youíve already put in....and thereís more to go?? It was quite a rollercoaster this morning until Tester pulled significantly ahead. I thought about you in the heat of battle with the ballot counting. Hope you can get some rest tonight.
